A set of keys

Hello everybody!  I hope you guys are well.  Yesterday I decided to do some arts and crafts.  It’s been awhile and I was simply in the mood, plus my daughter was taking her nap.  It doesn’t get any better than that, unless you’re taking a nap as well, but I was never good at that so crafting it is.  My first project involved a set of brass decorative keys and paint.  I have been wanting to do this for a long time now so what better time than the present.

Here’s what I did:

I purchased this lovely set of keys from a catalog, Terry’s Village, a long time ago.  You can check out their website for great, inexpensive home decor at terrysvillage.com.

Got my paint and brush ready.  I chose a baby blue, but I’ve had this bottle for a while now so I was scared that the paint inside was bad, but a good shake revealed that all was good.

I wanted some of the brass to show so I didn’t paint the key completely.  I let each key dry and then I painted the ring that held them together.

I love my new set of keys.  I love the blue shade and the brass gives it an antique look.  The painting process was actually quite calming, especially when there’s a two-year old napping away peacefully.  🙂

Take care all.  Until next time…
